Hello! When I use my computer for long hours, the CPU starts generating some strange noise as if it were to explode. It starts from a very low intensity and then the noise becomes very loud. But recently I have noticed that even if I just started using my computer, it generates noises so maybe this has nothing to do with the amount of time I use my computer. What could be the problem?
My computer generates unwanted noise
There are several scenarios that could cause unusual noise from your computer.
The hard drive is made up of magnetic disks that are constantly spinning along with the head that reads the information. You are probably hearing the drive itself running and some drives are quieter than others. Model newer then 2005 are much quieter. There are still factors that can cause a hard drive to become less efficient and having to work much harder. The more programs you run, the harder the hard drive has to work to process the information. This increases the noise of the hard drive.
A second cause of additional noise from your computer is the fan that cools the internal temperature of the CPU. Multiple programs running use a lot of processing power and will cause the processor to heat up. The fan will kick on in an attempt to cool it down. You need your fan to run but, in the process, it may become extremely compromised with dirt and dust. You can have a local computer shop clean this. It is not recommended that you do this yourself.
